On-site date House and the Uesugi family relationships, a why families both Crest bamboo had been about a sparrow or a description. If you visit here with the clockwise circulation bus (yonethead) (blue bus) station about 10 minutes. Fare is 200 yen. It is 1 hour. If you missed the taxi quick, fare is about 1000 yen.
